The new additions are an 18-tonne DAF LF and 7.2-tonne IVECO Daily curtainsider, both on five-year, full-service contract hire – the first time that Finewood Joinery has moved away from outright purchase.
Both vehicles are mounted with Tekbo bodywork and technology, including side- and rear-view cameras, and are accredited to FORS standards.
Willie Anderson, Finewood’s managing director, says: “Fraikin took the time to show how contract hire would offer genuine benefits for our business, which made it an easy decision for us. Having two brand new vehicles reflects well on us as a company, and as servicing and maintenance is also included, it’s one less thing for us to worry about.
“We worked closely with Fraikin to tailor the specs of these two new vehicles with innovations to make them as safe and efficient as possible. We’ve been very impressed with how easy the entire process has been and look forward to growing our fleet with them.”
The deal includes all servicing, maintenance and repair on a collection and delivery basis, along with tyre replacement, road fund licensing and 24/7 breakdown support.
